PS3 Preloader Advance by JaicraB, Restore Dev_Flash via LV2Diag


121w ago - This holiday weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer JaicraB has released PS3 Preloader Advance, a rewritten LV2Diag.self that allows restoring the Dev_Flash.bin file (to fix semi-bricked PS3 consoles) and has been tested on JFW DH CFW although it should work on all Custom Firmware he states.

Download: PS3 Preloader Advance SELF / PS3 Preloader Advance v2 SELF

To quote, roughly translated: Already available the tool to reset any "/ dev_flash". It is but a program that runs without external modules.

Why we find it being unable to load basic libraries housed in the "/ dev_flash" we must use direct syscalls to the kernel. The compilation is clean STUB external modules, hence it only takes a few KB ...

The function is to load the file "/ dev_usb000/flash1.bin" and write in RAW mode to the "/ dev_flash". But not before mounting the "/ dev_flash" Write mode.

It's simple but effective. There are dangers of bricks, but backup mistake or left unfinished for various reasons.

In principle works in all FIRMS, but mainly is designed to JFW-DH356MA by semibricks problems and instead of HDD when the system stored inside the "/ dev_flash".

But you have backups you can ask of anyone with the same firm or even removing it from the pup and mounting it on a FAT system. Its use is simple.

  • In Factory Mode to rename the "Preloader Advance.self" a "Lv2Diag.self" and copy it to USB.
  • Within the USB copy at the root of the flash backup named "flash0.bin"
  • Connect the USB into the port nearest the reader, and on the system. The LED blinks green. It means that restoring the flash.
  • When the process is shut down. Check the log it creates on the USB to be sure.
  • It only plays out of the factory mode with the "Lv2Diag.self" step2 flowing through the network.

Happy Holidays to all.

PS3 Preloader Advance 2

Bring Preloader version 2 of the Advance.

Improvements:

  • Configuration file to select the actions.
  • Restore all flashes.
  • Make backups of all the flashes.
  • Optimization of the code.
  • Auto-Exit Service mode.

Operation:

  • Be in Service Mode.
  • Copy and advance.cfg Lv2Diag.self-in USB
  • Modify the file to taste advance.cfg
  • Insert the usb backups according to the advance.cfg
  • Switch with USB-introduced into the nearest port to the reader.

The Evidence:

CORE- While this well and allow access to the Service mode, this utility will recover all the flash. The change of HDD in a 3.56 version is not a problem on systems with NOR memories. No need to do an UPDATE THROUGH. Good luck!

From DemonHades, roughly translated:

Good friends demons, the wait has been tedious and frustrating, so jaicrab wants us this gift to the community to wish a Merry Christmas to all those you had a semibrick with the installation of the JMB or a bad installation in the flash.

Steps:

1. Prepare our dongle to put it in service mode (I used my amazebreak, but it any other apparatus to use the downgrader payload). Then enter the port and do the combo usb000 power and eject, will turn itself off the PS3.
2. Download the JFW-DH 3.56 MA 1.2.1 Service Pack
3. Download of demonisos.net and rename it to flash0.bin
4. Place in the root of the pendrive (flash0.bin), and also put in the root renamed the advance preloader Lv2Diag.self
5. Introduce the stick in the port usb000 (closest to the reader) and turn on the console.
6. The LED will blink green while working on the restoration, when finished will go out alone.
7. For get into the root end of the usb Lv2Diag.self used to exit the service mode (finalized).
8. Ya again have our PS3 alive with the JFW-DH 3.56 MA.

No more, now you can have it back running the PS3 and not afraid to mess up, this system is tested in fat60 (I have bricked mine) and I have it again making war, is valid for any model although format the hdd.

And without further, 1saludo departed JaiCraB MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the demons DemonHades and friends

Get the skinny version, if you don't like the other features. Personally, I think most are great.

version 4.13 of MultiMan was the last good version for me. Any version past 4.14 is crap. I only use the 8x4 layout and its now changed for the worst. In 4.13 it loaded fast, it was smooth and no problems at all. In 4.14 it now takes 3x longer to load a page then every other page also takes 3x longer as it loads the icons everytime where 4.13 loads all at startup.

4.14 also brought this menu to the 8x4 layout so when you press O hoping it asks to quit it now brings up a menu. When you finally exit and load up MM again it goes to that menu not the games list. It feels bloated now, its slower, more button presses to exit without loading a game, and just sluggish all round.

DeanK doesn't care as I spoke to him about it and said he's not going to fix it, he's going to leave it buggy. If you dont believe me go try it out for yourself. v4.13 and v4.14. both on the 8x4 screen layout. You will see its now slower, takes longer and just feels bloated.

I'm staying on 4.13MM or going to iris when it works on 4.21REX.

What happened to multiman for you to call it bloatware?

I've been hearing so many good things about it

As MultiMan is becoming bloatware I'll give this a go.

Just tried it on 4.21REX and it says "Unsupported firmware" and quits.
